Shelby Seybert is the founder (or should we say driver) of joyfulwheels. She doesn’t believe in “unwritten rules” and thinks breaking the norm to bring a little joy is something incredibly important in life. Not to mention tiedye is her favorite color.
Say the word injustice and Shelby will be on a soapbox about some issue close to her heart! Some of the most common are human trafficking, the prison system, and racism. But instead of just ranting Shelby participates annually in Dressember, launched Building Hope: a prison mentoring program to help people getting out of jail get reconnected in the community, and raises over $7000 each year to run Christmas programing in the local jail where she provides every inmate with a present and hand written note as well as holiday activities.
Passionate about community and connecting people, Shelby created her current job for Calvary church where she does just that. Working with the local jail, the homeless community, and everyone else in town Shelby hosts community events, coordinates service projects, and fundraises for activities and local nonprofits.
